Great, but over another lipstick
Now don't get me wrong, I use oil slick quite a bit, but I have to say I'm slightly disappointed in the color payoff of this one. It's more like a gloss than a lipstick, but lasts longer than a gloss. It's very sheer, and I wouldn't wear it just on its own. I put it over a dark red or black lipstick for a little extra pop, alone it just looks kind of gray. The sparkles are more visible over another lip color. Don't expect the color to be BOOM, black. It kind of reminds me of a black tinted gloss that you could find in Halloween stores, but lasts about twice as long.
I got a sample of this and I must say that they've given me the right color. I like it. It applies to the lips with ease. Although conditioned first.
I bought my "indecent" lipstick a while ago at Sephora, on sale. When I saw the swatch on the box it was nude, when I tried it, well.. It was a lot darker than I thought haha A lil disappointed, but it was okay because the lipstick is great. It is very shinny, with lots of glitter and the color is beautiful.
Negative points: 1) I need to wear it with lipliner... Otherwise, it is not as homogeneous and opaque as I would like it to be...
2) I was disappointed because on the package it looks pink, but when you try it it is more like a peachy pink, not a true pink. See what I mean?
So I got a nice lipstick, but not the one I wanted because of its box.
Also, I LOVE the tube! It is really beautiful!!
Best Red Lipstick I've had in awhile!!
I bought this awhile ago in the F&F sale.
And it sat in my collection for awhile.
Then one night I was messing around with some makeup.
And rediscovered this beauty.
I have Medium Olive Skin.
So this is the PERFECT red for me.
It's got great color pay off.
And last a decent amount of time without reapplying.
I'll admit I bought this product initially more for the packaging than color. I am a huge red fan and while Gash is a not a true red red, I love that is very smooth and moisturizing for my lips. I love this color because I can apply it without too much work like I would with most of my darker lipsticks.
Decent, but I've had better.
I was pretty excited to get a full-sized lipstick in a Beauty in a Box set from Sephora, among a few other full-sized items. A long time ago I got a small sample of a different color from Urban Decay, but it doesn't quite give the full effect.
For the packaging, I give it a 4 out of 5. It is cute and will definitely protect the lipstick from damage, but the little dagger at the end is inconvenient. There are times when I would like to stand up my lipstick, perhaps to compare with others or photograph, and the packaging makes that impossible to do.
For the color (Wicked), I give it a 5 out of 5. It's described as a sheer sheen mauve, and that's exactly what it is. I would say it has pretty decent coverage, and because it's sheer, it will blend with most people's natural lip color for a customized effect.
For the texture and wear, I give it a 4 out of 5. The texture is really smooth and thick in a substantial way, and it seems to be hydrating. The color lasts many hours as long as you aren't eating or drinking too much. It doesn't hold up too well against excessive napkin blotting, but it's not really advertised as as long wear lipstick anyway.
What I particularly don't like about the product is the taste. That's sort of a weird thing to comment on for a lipstick, but this one has a weird bitter taste to it. The smell is nice (described as creme-caramel), but if you happen to lick your lips, which will happen from time to time, you get that bitter taste. For that strange element, I give it a 3 out of 5.
All factors considered (not mentioned, but the cost is $22), I probably won't look at Urban Decay first for lipstick; however, they do have a way with coming out with amazing must-have colors, so I guess we'll see. ;)
Pretty, sheer color!
These lipsticks arent my most favorite, but theyre pretty good!
They are sheer, yet creamy and moisturizing and have a yummie scent!
Dispite their silkyness, they do not wear off as quickly as you would think!
I felt like I went through my tube pretty quickly though due to the fact it was so sheer that I had to really layer it to get the pretty pink I wanted!
(and I also used this instead of a gloss bc it was the perfect pearly nude-pink!)
Lovechild is one of my favs! I use a LOT of pinks, and I've tried them all. But I keep coming back to Lovechild because of it's particular soft blend of pink, with just enough blue to keep my teeth looking white. The formula for these lipsticks is very soft, smooth, and creamy. They last and have just the right amount of pigmentation! I can't recommend them enough
My only complaint is the little metal sword on the end. If you break this off, it is very difficult the open the lipstick. Just an FYI
